Over the past year and a half, Wisconsinites have stepped up to be part of an incredible moment in our state's history. We stood up to Governor Walker and the divisive politics he's waged on Wisconsin.
While Tuesday's outcome wasn't all that we'd hoped for, we took a giant step forward by electing John Lehman and reclaiming the state Senate.
I hope you're as proud as I am about the courage we've shown throughout this hard-fought campaign.
Looking ahead, we know that President Obama is in a strong position in our state and Wisconsinites like you know he will fight for middle-class families and an economy where people who work hard can succeed.
We're going to need you in the coming months, but for now we just wanted to say thank you for all that you've done and for all that you've shared with us.
I'm proud to fight with you.
